Swansboro golfer Parker Marion came a stroke away from medaling her second straight 3A Coastal Conference match last week.
The junior shot a 43 on the front nine of the Morehead City Country Club on Tuesday, Sept. 6, to finish second to the 42 posted by former teammate Nicole Hassi of Croatan. The Bucs finished fourth overall with a combined score of 181.
In the first match of the season at Star Hill Golf & Country Club, Marion medaled with a match-low 36. Only Hassi shot below a 40 with a 39.
At Morehead City, Swansboro’s Ella Brown and Hannah Hinken each scored a 69. They are the only three golfers on the team this year.
Swansboro will be at Rock Creek Golf Club in Richlands Wednesday, Sept. 14, for its next conference match.
